The federal Conservatives have again taken a significant lead over the Liberals, with six percentage points now separating the two parties, a new poll suggests.According to the latest results from EKOS, released exclusively to CBC News, 33.3 per cent of respondents said they would vote for the Tories if an election were held today, up from 29.4 per cent two weeks ago.The Liberals received 27.1 per cent support, down from 28.6 per cent. Support for the NDP also declined, to 16.6 per cent from 19.3 per cent.Two weeks ago, poll results suggested the Tories and Liberals were in a statistical tie.The poll suggests that Conservatives continue to garner support among seniors, men, those born in Canada and those with middle levels of socioeconomic status. Meanwhile, Liberals continue to get support from the university-educated, non-Canadian born and Ontario residents. But despite the Conservative lead, trust in government has apparently fallen to its lowest level since the Tories took office in 2006. Asked, "How much do you trust the government in Ottawa to do what is right?", 24 per cent of respondents said "Never" and 44 per cent said "Only some of the time." Twenty-eight per cent said "Most of the time" and five per cent said "Almost always." Respondents were also asked about their political ideology and if they consider themselves a small "c" conservative or a small "l" liberal. Forty per cent responded "Neither," while 32 per cent said liberal and 28 per cent said conservative. The random telephone survey of 1,973 Canadians aged 18 and over was conducted Nov. 17-23 and is said to carry a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

It is hard to believe that Harper isn't in majority government numbers. When are we going to get the chance to see what his real agenda is going to be?

This divide will rise to 40% - 20% through 2011. Then it's go-time. Rosie Harpers agenda is voiced by the increasingly non-silent majority. When it becomes clear that they are prepared to remain on their feet - he will speak clearly to over-due issues.

So what is Harpers agenda? Give us some hope.
Thanks

At least we know where HE stands, and he cannot be swayed away from the Conservative view. That is good, as far as I am concerned.
Others would ask all of Canada , "What do you want me to do?"
It is ridiculous to have to listen to the electorate. We have Harpr in power and he told us what his platform was going to be, and he is the "decider"!
I am happy to see someone in power, actually doing something, even though the press doesn't like it. Such bad press, which is their job to act as official opposition because we have a namby-pamby opposition leader. lol
We may never have a prime minister with a majority government. I tink Harper has to get Quebec to secede, so Harper can have a majority on what is left.

If this is an example of where he stands, he may be in trouble.
Aren't seniors Canada fast growing population? And their kids votes are also at risk if their parents living style is at risk.

The Conservative party will make gains in Quebec but another bonus was yesterday's resignation of Danny Williams. His "Anything but Conservative" campaign (beef with Harper on oil dividends) cost us every seat in that province. So count on another 7 coming from there. We'll be in majority territory when the time comes.
